A lot of our new customers, particularly over the trial period like to test out 2fa using both the Static password, which is your normal AD account password plus, for the second factor, a One-Time Password or OTP.

The OTP is a 6 digit figure generated by an algorithm that changes either every 30 or 60 seconds if time based, or with a key press if event based.  Currently our mobile ID App only supports 60 second time based.  For 30 second or event based, you will need to purchase a safe/ID token.


For testing, however the  easiest method is to set up  mobile ID tokens and your smart phone to authenticate.   As mentioned in the introduction, you can find the DeepNet MobileID app in Appstore for iPhone or Google Play for Android.


First install the App on the phone.
